Campus Green – Big DUCATi (Official Visual)

This is a collaboration I recorded on Logic ProX, with a Blue Microphone Bluebird Cardioid Condenser Microphone, and Scarlett interface. The beat was from producer Alec Dacar, and featured JaeOhEsH’s vocals and mixing effects. The visual animation was made in collaboration with Sir Willis IV, and assets in frame are conceptually based.

Lil Cal-Vert – Coastin (feat. WELOVETURTLE, RiCH)

No.02042018 (Experimental Zoom)

No. 02042018 is an Experimental Sound Piece.

2 People at the IMRC were given 3 hours to record during their natural workday, with the goal to capture “natural” sounds.

The sound bank’s were mixed in Logic Pro X, using the same procedure that is naturally used for pop music vocals, or pop music production.

This piece was featured in this years IMFA 2018 Critique class, comments as follows:

“What were your parameters?”

“I thought I was Tripping!”

“Why did the visualizer not sync to the audio?”

“Why did you use a visualizer?”

Entanglement

Entanglement: An Experimental Performance from Josh Couturier on Vimeo.

[Audio Link]

Concept: Develop An Experimental Sound and Movement Performance using a Nautical Fishing net as the conductor for each.

Sound Experiment: Synthesize pop rhythms using pop instruments and pop mixing/mastering techniques to create a feeling of industrial-esque sounds and stress of living organisms. The Nautical Fishing net also was thrown over the computer to make decisions in the composition that would contribute to note pitch, length, and numbers of occurrence.

Performance Experiment: Create an Avant-garde minimalist movement piece using meditation, and the Nautical fishing net to Detangle in real time unknowing the outcome during the duration 6:21. (Soundtrack Duration)

“I found myself thinking after 30 minutes on the cold dark floor, struggling wondering before the performance, will I escape my Entanglement?”

Comments:

“It reminded me of a Houdini escape!”

“It reminded me of being in the Holland tunnel!”

“Something sounded like creatures hissing!”

“Yo is this thrash metal?”

“I was’nt sure if you were going to escape by the time the audio ended?!”

“I dont think you should call this Entanglement, I think it should be called Detangled…”

 

 

 

 

The X-Change

This is a year in film project where we filmed using a Blackmagic Cinema Camera 18mm-135mm Lens, on a Fluid Head Tripod, using boom microphones above the subjects collecting audio based on conversation directions, and external LED set lighting with a light blue filter on the stage right and left lights. From here the conversation and dialogue was edited to give a dramatic cinematic feel, using quick cuts to action and dialogue and Lumetri Color Correction in Premiere, to communicate “The X-Change”.

Trails Of Life

This is a documentary short about Colby and his Appalachian trail adventure. This story gives viewers a sense of what the Appalachian trail is like for adventurers today. The challenges that they can encounter and the wonderful sights, lessons and friendships they take away. Truly a must see. Colby answers and elaborates on my questions that help chisel out his reflection of the trip. The majority of this video was a compiled archives of cell phone and a computer webcam diary that were organised to help tell Colbys story, in Premiere and iMovie.
